What a wonderful weekend! This was my first time renting a house with friends in Palm Springs and we had a great time. So great to spend some quality time with friends and just relax. And since we were there celebrating a birthday, you know there had to be an easy garland and cake. Hope you all had a great weekend too. Phase 2 of our Palm Springs adventure starts
This weekend I will be luxuriating in a rented home in Palm Springs, CA with a wonderful group of friends (holla Genette!!! Thank you for being born so we could celebrate you in style! :). I was on a twitter party earlier this week and found out that you could make some amazing cocktails with Ciao Bella Sorbets…yeah. I can think of nothing better than sitting on a raft in
My friends are too good to me. I often joke that I only am friends with talented people. I didn’t intend to do that, but it has worked out to my benefit. Especially with my friend Amy. She encourages me in all my creative endeavors and if I mention that I need a baked treat for any reason, she is all over it. I’ve mentioned her blog, Southern Belly Kitchen,

This post is picture heavy. Be warned. So the premise of the party was that O was inviting his friends over to be part of his space exploration team. And since the first question I always ask when starting a new activity is “do I get a new outfit,” I decided that I should make “uniforms” for each kid.
